Beware, Afi Tajvidi’s polymer characters are sweeter than Easter candy and just as addictive. This Toronto artist has a delicate voice and a soft touch completely in sync with her palette and her stories. Check out Hippopo shown here or the romantic Igie and JellyBelly.
Her dainty, fine characters are sometimes available on her Etsy Joojooland shop where she also sells her illustrations and jewelry. They’re nicely grouped on Flickr.
Hippopo looks like a perfect companion. I am impressed with Afi’s soft touch.
The character and shapes are so refined. Very Sweet indeed.

So gently sweet and whimsical, not to mention beautifully crafted.
